One day our oldest daughter brought home The FEEL GOOD Book, by Todd Parr from her school library. After she read it to us she jumped up, got her clipboard and pen and started to write about all of the things that make her feel good.

Well… I have to tell you—the whole scenario made me feel good 🙂

Here are some of the things she wrote…
Being near nature.
Eating good food feels good.
Swinging in my hammock.
Seeing my parents feels good.
When it’s my birthday feels good.
Brushing my teeth with a Hello Kitty toothbrush feels good.
It feels good when the seasons come.
Climbing trees feels good.
Cooking things feels good.
Being loved feels good.

We hope you have a feel good kind of day!
